Earlier this year, Sustainalytics ranked INNIO number one out more than 500 companies, meaning it has the lowest risk within the machinery industry assessed (Rating of 11 “Low risk level”). In addition, INNIO received the Gold Medal from EcoVadis, placing its Jenbacher business in the top 1% of industry peers. Last year, INNIO became signatory of the Science Based Targets initiative and the United Nations ‘Race to Zero’ campaign, that brings together global leadership for a healthy, resilient, and zero-carbon future.

In accordance with global frameworks and commitments, INNIO set out ambitious sustainability targets in three strategic focus areas where it sees the most material impacts and opportunities for improvement: Low Carbon and Circular Products, Resilient Supply Chain and Manufacturing, and Responsible Operations and Social Responsibility.

Selected key ambitions in these areas include:

  • Since 2022, INNIO offers all new engines with a “Ready for H2” option. These models can operate with up to 20% vol. hydrogen1, and can be retrofitted to 100% H2 operation in the future. All Type 4 series engines are offered for 100% H2 operations. As of 2025 and beyond, the entire Jenbacher product line is expected to be rolled out with 100% hydrogen operation.
  • Suppliers covering 80% of direct and indirect spend must commit to net zero by 2050.
  • 50% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions in supply chain and manufacturing (vs. the 2020 base) will be fully implemented by 2030.
  • By 2025, identified diversity groups will increase by 25% across functions compared to the 2020 baseline. Diverse people leadership will be developed further by 20302.

Dr. Olaf Berlien, chief executive officer at INNIO, states:

“I’m incredibly proud of the steps we have taken to implement our ESG strategy. The outstanding recognition we have received for our achievements with leading ESG ratings shows that we are on the right track on our path to net zero.”

Marcin Kawa, vice president Sustainability at INNIO, states:

“INNIO’s 2021 Sustainability Report summarizes a year filled with sustainability and ESG initiatives, collaboration, and progress. “This report is the next milestone in our journey as we move ‘Together Towards Zero.’ I’m happy to be part of a team that is so passionate about making a difference while building transparency and trust among our stakeholders worldwide.”
